Houston Has Redeemed Itself-Sort Of

As some of you may or may not know Houston has not been one of my favorite places to be or live. Lack of a train system that causes me and all the other Houstonians to have to drive everywhere and waste gazillions of dollars in gas money has been at the top of my list for reasons to dislike Houston. "But we do have a train!" say the natives. That would be useful to me if it didn't go in only two directions-to the medical center and away from the medical center. I digress. I didn't come here today to talk about Houston's (lack of a) transportation system.

I came to talk about how two of my favorite artists are coming to Houston in November-Regina Spektor and Silverchair. Even better, they are playing at venues that are only a block away from my place. Regina Spektor will be at Warehouse Live on November 7 and Silverchair will be at Meridian on November 28.

Other bands I'm excited to see playing around these here parts are Dashboard with Augustana at Warehouse Live and Hot Hot Heat at Meridian. Yay Houston!

Thats funny, Detroit has one track that goes in a circle around downtown.
Philly has trains that bring you from suburbia to downtown, and even to the airport (how smart is that). A treat for me, its my first time livin in a city with an effective DOT. yay lol

k- we learned in my american history class that the south lost the war because their train track only ran in circles. probably the only thing i remember from that class.

either way, yay for Philly and Detroit for at least having something! we need a train from the suburbs in houston to downtown SO MUCH! Do you take the train in philly?
